Pirate hunter Captain Edward Reynolds and his blond first mate, Jules Steel, return where they are recruited by a shady governor general to find a darkly sinister Chinese empress pirate, ... See full summary »
Robby D.'s scripts are generally functional at best, and that's what keeps "Mothers & Daughters" from classifying as a fully-realized, fine film. But it is so much better than the dozens of throwaway careless quickies he churned out at Digital Playground 5 or so years ago that I found it a pleasant enough surprise.
Perhaps his secret weapon is what's not advertised in the packaging or marketing -casting of several all-time Greats to back up the usual cast of DP contract girls. So we get in the Momma roles Lisa Ann, scrumptious and absolutely irresistible (to Danny Mountain) in a hot scene, and even better Dyanna Lauren giving Manuel Ferrara a going-away hump for the ages. Robby can't resist over-stressing that Lauren is older than Manuel, a plot device that I didn't buy.
Less impressive are the gals on the DP payroll: bratty Jesse Jane as Lauren's kid who gets back at mamma bedding her ex-boyfriend Manuel by doing a tits for tat routine, humping Dyanna's ex Evan Stone, in conjunction with pal Riley Steele. Steele, despite her trademarked name in the DP stable, is just written into the script as 2 on 1 partner & sounding board for Jesse.
Another DP girl, cute Latina Selena Rose, is oddly cast as Lisa Ann's daughter. Her gal pal, Latina Vicki Chase, would be the obvious "mother" figure to Selena if Robby were to really stretch the age-gimmick, but instead he has them doing Sapphic sex in tandem with big-dicked Ben English (Lisa's boyfriend), and each demonstrating admirable deep-throat skills in the process. English for some reason adds considerable panache, unearned in Robby's script and a bit incredible in porn context.
That leaves the mother/daughter team of Diamond Foxxx and Kayden Kross, latter a newcomer to DP's stable of regulars. They both deliver quality acting and deserve a movie of their own, rather than shoe-horned into this lengthy opus, replete with a second disk in the DVD package to qualify it for the label's prestige wing, important since the hit days of "Pirates" and its sequel. Alas, DP was sold and merged after this movie, and its salad days are long gone.
